Paul was known all around town - no matter what store or restaurant we took him to, someone was always coming up to him and saying, "Hello." Even though he couldn't see them he always knew their name and greatly enjoyed the encounters. Paul was an avid collector of music, Matchbox cars and friends. He loved eating at Bonanza and shopping at Walmart. He enjoyed his time spent at the Blind Association where he excelled in making beaded bracelets.
Funeral services will be held at St. Patrick Cemetery, Franklin at 10:30 a.m. Monday with the Rev. Robert Manning presiding.
